    How'd you come up with-2 for the slope?

    There are several different ways to come up with the slope. The easiest way in this case is to compute the rise/run

    Okay. How do I do that, what's the equation?

    plot two convenient points on the line In this case, the origin and (1,-5). Then, starting at the origin ' count five units down. That's your rise. It's a RISE in the NEGATIVE direction. Then count one unit to the right. That's a RUN of one unit. So m= rise/run =-5/1 =-5

    Awesome. There are other methods to calculate the slope but that's the graphical (EASIEST) method.
